“Countrywide Grounds Maintenance are currently responsible for maintaining the grounds at Lady Lumley’s School . Countrywide took over the contract from Scarborough Borough Council in April 2008 and provide the School with a first class service. The grounds are maintained to a high standard and the staff who visit site are punctual, reliable and professional. Where there have been issues that have needed addressing Countrywide have acted promptly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in recommending Countrywide to other organisations.”

"It is now 5 years since we joined forces with Countrywide Grounds Maintenance & throughout this time they have continued to impress with excellent staff and great customer service. They are always on top of the situation and we do not have to chase them to do the jobs they are contracted to undertake. So satisfied we have just signed up for another 2 years."
Deputy Head, George Pindar Community Sport College, Scarborough.
“The comments received from both staff and visitors are that the grounds have never looked so good.”
Estates Manager, Scarborough Sixth Form, Scarborough.
"We have been delighted with the service that we have received from Countrywide and would recommend the service to other schools. An example of their dedication and professional approach is the fact that they stepped in at the last minute, working on a Sunday (due to all the bad weather), to ensure that our sports day went off without a hitch".
School Business Manager, Nafferton Primary School
“We have used Countrywide for our Grounds Maintenance for a number of years and have found their service to be very efficient and friendly. Not only do they provide value for money compared to our LA Grounds Service but any "extras" are carried out with the minimum of fuss and sometime at no additional cost. Our LA are very keen on checking competitors' work and they have passed inspections on a regular basis and their paperwork is second to none.”
